Thought the ending didn't really make sense between Julia/Barnabus and Miranda/Barnabus and Antoinette/Barnabus. The author tried to simplify everything too much at the end where they were complicated relationships throughout the book. Did enjoy the story line though! Was a huge fan of the Dark Shadows original series 60's & 70's. Even enjoyed the movie with Johnnie Depp-brought back lots of fun memories of that time period!
